General statement: I integrate the study of behavior, neurobiology, and ecology to understand the evolutionary processes important in integrative and comparative biology and psychology. The overarching goal of my research is to understand the process by which natural selection influences cognition, especially in terms of the traits associated with space use in animals. We ask questions focused on the neurological mechanisms of memory and cognition, the evolution of the mechanisms of fear, and the ecological relevance of sleep. Most of my work focuses on avian models, but I am not averse to collaborating on projects using other taxa. I work both in the field and in the lab, incorporating a wide variety of spatial, ecological, observational, and neurological techniques.
